25170 (1) THE 1845 MISSISSIPPI STATE CENSUS OF TIPPAH COUNTY :

This census was submited August 19, 1845 and shows a white population of 11,669 persons. It is presented here as on the original, except that some spellings have been changed to conform to those presently in use ("Luney" to "Luna" "Meaks" to Meeks", etc.). This census gives a fair indication of the communities these people lived in, and by presenting it in its original order we can establish each family's neighbors and possibly show more closely the biological relationships involved. . . .

LEMASTERS FAMILY

The earliest of the Lemasters family who could possibly have been our immigrant ancestor was Abraham Le Maistre, a Huguenot who was born about 1637. He came to Maryland in 1668, possibly by way of Barbados, and settled in Charles County, Maryland. In 1700 he held patents on various tracts of land. Lands were granted to Richard LeMaistre in 1720 and 1724 in Charles County and St. Mary's County, Maryland.

An Abraham De LeMaistre will in Charles County dated 1772 names a wife and sons Richard, John, and Isaac.

In the 1790 census there were Lemasters in South Carolina, but none in North Carolina. There were some in Maryland. These appear under various spellings of the name.

In early tax lists of Virginia are found the names of Isaac Lamaster and Joseph Lamaster in Hampshire County in 1782. Isaac bad five in his family and Joseph four. Hampshire county later became part of West Virginia. A Benjamin Lemasters was born and died (1756-1837) in Nicholas County, Virginia, later West Virginia.

On the 1783 tax list of Amherst County were Ralph Lamaster with a family of thirteen and Abraham Lamaster with three. In 1785 Ralph had fourteen and Abraham six. Richard Lemaster was with the Botetourt troops in 1774. His will written in 1774 in Amherst County, Virginia was presented for probate by Abraham Lamaster June 3, 1776 and names mother Ann, and brothers Abraham and Ralph. So this Richard apparently died without issue.

One Abraham Lamaster was married in Albemarle County, Virginia (next county north of Amherst county) September 26, 1781 to Sarah Wood, daughter of John Wood.

Evidently, each generation of Lemasters early in Maryland and in Amherst County, Virginia produced several Abrahams, Richards, and Isaacs. The names are found in abundance as the Lemasters moved into Bourbon County and Jefferson County, Kentucky.

Early in Jefferson County were Eleazer LeMaster, who married Jemima Floyd, daughter of William Preston Floyd of Amherst and Botetourt counties, Virginia. They came in 1779. In 1784 James LeMaster received 100 acres for Virginia military service. John LeMaster, born 1749 in Amherst County, was killed at a fort near Louisville. He had married another Jemima Floyd in 1768. In 1784 she received a land grant of 400 acres and on May 25, 1784 married James Sturgis, Jr.

The first Lemasters whom we know to be a direct ancestor was RICHARD LEMASTERS whose name appears as a signer on petitions in Bourbon County, Kentucky in 1788-1790. His name appears on Bourbon tax lists 1790-1791 and Montgomery County tax list in 1797. (Montgomery was taken from Clark in 1798, and Clark, previously, from Bourbon in 1792) Also on these Bourbon lists are the names of Isaac, Conrad, and Benjamin Lemasters - probably close relatives. In 1799 the names of Isaac and Conrad appear in Hamilton County, Ohio.

Benjamin Lemasters married Polly Langston September 21, 1797 in Clark County, Kentucky.

RICHARD LEMASTERS was married May 11, 1793 in Bourbon County by Augustine Bastin to CATHERINE LANGSTON, daughter of JACOB LANGSTON, and sister of Polly. Sometime after 1797 they moved to Clermont County, Ohio. On March 31, 1807 he bought 100 acres and he appears on the 1810 tax list. On October 19, 1811 the 100 acres in Washington township was sold for $450, the deed being signed by the marks (X) of Richard and Cate Lemasters. Next is found a record of purchase of 106 acres on waters of Shalers Branch of the East Fork of Miami River by Richard Lemasters, Sr. This 106 acres was sold August 15, 1829 for $1000, the deed signed by the mark of Richard Lemasters and Katherine Lemasters.

The family moved to Rush County, Indiana. In the 1830 census Catherine is listed as head of the family, so Richard had died since August 1829, probably in Clermont County. With her is listed one male between 15 and 20 (probably Richard, Jr.) and one male between 5 and 10. The latter was Henry Langston, born June 21, 1821, son of her daughter, Polly. He was reared by his grandparents and took the name of Lemasters. Also in the 1830 census of Rush County is her son, John and family.

On October 9, 1835 Catherine sold 80 acres for $640. This was in the southeast corner of Rush County, one mile north of the Decatur line and two miles west of the Franklin line. The deed was signed by Catherine, John and his wife, Isabell. Catherine died about 1839, probably in Shelby County.

Children of RICHARD and CATHERINE (LANGSTON) LEMASTERS:

[i] SARAH, born February 13, 1794 in Kentucky, died Dec. 28, 1870 Shelby County, Ind.; married July 13,
1811 in Clermont County, Ohio to JACOB TREES (1791-1870), son of JOHN and HANNAH TREES.

[ii] John, born 1800/10; married Isabells McEffee in Clermont Co., Ohio, August 21, 1828.

[iii] Abraham, married March 16, 1823 in Clermont Co., to Elizabeth Rounds, daughter of Lemuel Rounds, Rev. soldier.

[iv] Polly (Mary) married April 8, 1821 William Langston in Clermont Co., Ohio.

[v] Richard, born 1810/15 in Clermont Co., Ohio.

25172 (1) The Ancestral File claims that Edmund LINDSAY (AFN: 8MXZ-8T) (a) was a son of Edward LINDSAY (AFN: 8MXZ-CC); and (b) had three brothers, namely, John LINDSAY (AFN: 8MXZ-GV), Thomas LINDSAY (AFN: 8MXZ-H2), and James LINDSAY (AFN: 8MXZ-FP). The compiler believes that these claims are questionable.

(2) The compiler has found no mention, in the early records of MD, of any LINDSAY (however spelled) named Edward. Likewise, the compiler has found no proof, in the early records of MD, that any of Edward's purported sons were related to each other.

(3) The claimed kinship between Edward's purported sons, James and Edmond, is questionable because James was an Irish Catholic, and Edmund was a Protestant who, according to the Ancestral File, was born in England.

(4) See the case of Thomas KELLE, plaintiff, vs. James LINSEY, defendant (MD State Archives , Proceedings of the County Court of Charles County, 1658-1666, Vol. 53, pp. 118-119), heard on 7 May 1661, in which "the Defendant by reason that hee was an Irishman and finding great difficultie to deliuer himself in ow English tounge humblie requesteth the . . . fauor to macke choyse of an Atturney. . . ."

(5) In his will dated 21 April 1671 and proved 3 May 1671, James LINDSEY bequeathed personal property to the Catholic church. See Maryland Calendar of Wills [database online], Provo, UT: The Generations Network, Inc., 1998, vol. 1, p. 433. The compiler believes that James would not have made a bequest to the Catholic church unless he had been a Catholic.

(6) On the other hand, Edmond LINDSEY was a Protestant. At the March 4, 1661/2 session of the Charles County Court, Edmond sued William HILLS for 150 pounds of tobacco, which the latter had promised that he would pay the minister, and the court ordered the payment to Edmond as church warden. See MD State Archives , Proceedings of the County Court of Charles County, 1658-1666, Vol. 53, pp. liv and 193.

(7) An article by William Thorndale, "An Incorrect Ancestry for the Portobacco Lindseys of Early Maryland" appears in the Lindsay Newsletter: Southern Colonial Branches, Vol. 1, No. 3 (August 1981), New York, NY: Elliott Lindsey Stringham, pp. 46-50. That article debunks the ancestry for the Portabacco LINDSEYs set forth in Grandpas, Inlaws, and Outlaws (A Lindsay Family Genealogy), Kenneth Gene Lindsay, (Evansville, IN: c1974), pp. 1-7. That ancestry is substantially the same as the ancestry set forth in the Ancestral File.

Mr. Thorndale's article reads as follows:

Among the earliest settlers of Kentucky was Anthony Lindsay, the founder of Lindsays Station on the Elkhorn. Anthony's Lindsay ancestry is the subject of the first thirteen pages of a book titled Grandpas, Inlaws, and Outlaws, and a captivating ancestry it is. The author traces the Lindsay line back to a Scot who "held a close relationship with George Calvert," First Lord Baltimore. Thomas, the Scot in question, supposedly died in 1608 at Fen-Stanton in Huntingdonshire, England, leaving at least sons Christopher, who went to Massachusetts, and Edward, who followed Calvert to Newfoundland in 1627 and to Jamestown, Virginia, in 1629. Further, according to this book, Edward was a sea captain and commanded the ship that brought Gov. Leonard Calvert to the New World to establish the colony of Maryland. Edward is said to have had four sons: (1) James, who is named in the governor's will and later became prominent in Charles County, (2) Edmund, whose Portobacco inn at one time served as the Charles County courthouse, (3) Thomas, who ultimately settled in Cecil County, and (4) John, who lived in Isle of Wight County, Virginia.

On the face of it, the ancestry is historically entrancing: The link with an English parish, the close association with the Calverts in the settling of Newfoundland and Maryland, and the tying together of Lindsay branches in Maryland, Massachusetts, and Virginia. Unfortunately, the book has no reliable documentation to substantiate its claims and there is primary evidence to contradict the book's assertions.

Consider sea captain Edward Lindsay, who came to Maryland with Leonard Calvert, "made his home in Charles County," and died at sea in 1677. According to contemporary sources, Governor Calvert's ship - the Ark - was captained by Richard Lowe, while the accompanying ship -the Dove - was under the command of Richard Orchard. A list, reconstructed and not contemporary, of all known persons who came on the Ark and the Dove has no Lindsay. A history of early Maryland sea captains lists no Lindsay master. As will be shown below, no sea captain Edward Lindsay appears in the early published Maryland records.

According to Grandpas, Inlaws, and Outlaws, the sea captain's sons James and Edmund arrived in 1643 and 1656 respectively. Yet the author also says they and two younger brothers were born about 1621-1630 in England, but their father Edward came to Maryland by 1634. Does this mean the sea captain left his family in England while he became so settled in Maryland that his estate was probated in Charles County? This is possible but not likely.

The greatest weakness of the book's account of the earliest Lindsay generations is the lack of primary sources. Generalized secondary sources such as Burke's Peerage and Baronetage, Andrews' History of Maryland, and Fiske's Old Virginia and Her Neighbours, plus the Charles County tercentenary history are cursory sources that contribute nothing significant about the Lindsays. Stripped of such secondary sources, the book's references that might supply primary evidence on the first three Lindsay generations are:

1. The Early Settlers of Maryland - G. Skordas, pp. 290-291

2. Maryland Land Records - Burns

3. Maryland Historical Magazine pp. 270, 312, 360, 144, 160, 161, 162, 355, 142, plus XIX, p. 339

4. Charles County, Maryland, Registrar of Wills

Sources 1, 2, and 4 do contain Lindsay references but not to any sea captain named Edward. No where are the more than seventy volumes of the Archives of Maryland mentioned, yet volumes 53 and 60 contain a verbatim copy of the Charles County court minutes, which are filled with references to James and Edmund Lindsay and no reference to any Edward.

Sources 1 and 2 do contain abstracts of Maryland's patent books, but none of the references do more than prove that James and Edmund lived in early Maryland. The one reference to an Edward (Liber Q:131) is clearly Edmund in the original record. Likewise, the early Charles County wills have no support for the tale of sea captain Edward Lindsay and provide no proof of the family ties given in the book.

The author's remaining source is the Maryland Historical Magazine. The reader must first determine the volume numbers, since with one exception the author gives no volumes for where the various paged references are found. There were 71 volumes published 1906 to 1976, all of which were checked here for Lindsay references given in Grandpas, Inlaws, and Outlaws, the following having been found:

XIX:339 "Two Forgotten Heroes," Arthur L. Keith, 19 (1924) 339. Nothing on any Lindsay.

270 Not found.

312 "Private Manors: An Edited List," Donnell MacClure Owings, 33 (1939) 312. Lists the Snow Hill Manor of James Lindsay of Charles County.

360 Not found.

144 "Smallwood Family of Charles. County," Arthur L. Keith, 22 (1927) 144. "On Sept. 24, 1677 James Smallwood and Ralph Shaw were apprs [appraisers] of Edward Lindsay."

160 "The First Church in Charles County," Louis Dow Scisco, 23 (1928) 160. A brief note on a court case initiated by Edmond Lindsay as churchwarden, 1662.

161 Ibid.

162 Ibid. Reference to sheriff James Lindsay of Charles County, 1662. Or the p. 162 refers to "First Land Grants in Maryland," 3 (1908) 162, which is another summary of the James Lindsay ownership of Snow Hill Manor.

355 "People of Early Charles County," Louis Dow Scisco, 23 (1928) 355. Brief accounts of James and Edmund Lindsay of Portobacco.

142 "Smallwood Family of Charles County," Arthur L. Keith, 22 (1927) 142. "On Apr. 20, 1687 Edmond Lindsey sold to James Smallwood land called "May Day", 300 acres, (LaPlata, Lib. N, No. 1, fol. 210)."

All the above references apply to James and Edmund of early Portobacco except for one instance (22:144), which has the 1677 appraisal of Edward's estate.

A check of the original Charles County inventories 1677-1717, pages 11-12, shows that on 24 September 1677 the estate of "Edmond Lindsy late of Charles County Deceased Aprised by us James Smallwood and Ralph Shaw. . . ."

In summary, the primary sources of Grandpas, Inlaws, and Outlaws fail to substantiate the existence of a sea captain Edward Lindsay and do not supply any proof of kinship for the first three generations as outlined in the book nor even give any family ties between James and Edmund. Nor do the book's sources document any connections with Fen-Stanton, Newfoundland, or Jamestown.

And finally, the claim that the family was of English origins is cast in doubt by an entry found in the Charles County court minutes and published in the Archives of Maryland, volume 53, page 119. In the case of Thomas Kelle, plt., vs Mr. James Linsey, dft., heard 7 May 1661, the plaintiff asked for an attorney:

Whereupon the Plantiue alleging that through simplicitie hee was not able to mannage his Caus humbly requesteth Leaue to macke Choyce of an Atturney to plead his caus which is granted him whearupon he Chose Mr John hawkings to bee bee [sic] his Attur: Whearupon the the Defendant by reason that hee was an Irishman and finding great difficultie to deliuver himself in ow English tounge humblie requesteth the lick fauor to macke choyse of an Atturney whereupon hee made choyce of for his Atturney Mr Richard Cosdin. . . .

Since James Lindsay was Catholic as proven by his will and that of his daughter Eliza, it seems he was of native Catholic Irish birth. The other hypothesis is only marginally plausible: James was a Gaelic-speaking Highland Scot from Ulster either Catholic by birth or a convert while an indentured servant to Gov. Leonard Calvert. But whatever his Irish ethnic origins, it seems he was not born in England.

In light of James's Irish and Catholic background, the question of any kinship to Edmund is raised because Edmund was Protestant. James's only son James, Jr., died about 1676-1677 and "left no heir behind him at the time of his death that can lay claim to the said land [he owned]" and thus his land inherited from his father escheated to the Lord Proprietor rather than passing to Edmund or Edmund's son. Does this mean James, Sr., and Edmund were not kin or merely reflect the complicated English land inheritance laws? At present all that can be said is that no direct evidence exists making James and Edmund kin.

In summary, Grandpas, Inlaws, and Outlaws must be rejected concerning the existence of a sea captain Edward Lindsey. The earliest Lindseys of Maryland were James and Edmund of Portobacco, with James being born in Ireland and Edmund's origins unknown. But it should be noted that the great bulk of the book concerns the descendants of Anthony of Lindsays Station and collects a large amount of data on the family. While all statements in this book - or any other genealogy - should be independently verified, the author is commended for getting so much information into print. It is just that the ancestry of the first Anthony Lindsay as given in Grandpas, Inlaws, and Outlaws appears to be wrong and it is doubtful if Anthony's line is even related to the Portobacco men. Proof to the contrary will be happily published in this newsletter if supplied.

(8) On December 3, 1651, "Edmond Lindesey aged about 26 years [was] Sworn and Examined on the behalf of Willm Johnson in open Court." See MD State Archives , Judicial and Testamentary Business of the Provincial Court, 1649/50-1657, Vol. 10, p. 118. If Edmond LINDESEY was about 26 years of age on December 3, 1651, he would have been born in about 1625.

(9) Edmond LINDSEY immigrated to MD in 1650, according to Passenger and Immigration Lists Index, 1500s-1900s [database online], Provo, UT: The Generations Network, Inc., 2006:

(11) Klapthor, Margaret Brown & Brown, Paul Dennis, The History of Charles County, Maryland: Written in Its Tercentenary Year of 1958, Westminster, MD: Heritage Books, 1995, p. 15:

In the May 12, 1659, session of the Charles County Court "supened" Robert Troop, Edmund Linsey and Joseph Linton before them to declare who it was who had called Justice Capt. John Jenkins "Captain Grindstone", perhaps a reference to his hardness as a Justice. No action was recorded in this contempt case.

(12) On April 17, 1660, William ROBINSON stated that he desired "Edmond Lyndsey Aged about 36 yeares to be sworne in open Courte." See MD State Archives , Proceedings of the County Court of Charles County, 1658-1666, Vol. 53, p. 71. If Edmond LYNDSEY was about 36 years of age on April 17, 1660, he would have been born in about 1624.

(13) On or about January 16, 1662/3, Edmond LINDSEY's business parter, Richard PINNER, was informed that Edmond was planning to marry. See MD State Archives , Proceedings of the County Court of Charles County, 1658-1666, Vol. 53, p. 325. Presumably Eleanor was the person whom Edmond was planning to marry.

(14) As of October 14, 1665, Eleanor LINDSEY, the wife of Edmond LINDSEY, Sr., was "ready to bee brought a bed being uery greate wth Child," and was "uery neere her time to bee deliuered." See Maryland State Archives , Proceedings of the Provincial Court - 1663-1666, vol. 49, p. 505.

(15) Edmund LINDSEY, Sr. had a daughter, Anne, who was born before August 14, 1666. See MD State Archives , Proceedings of the County Courts of Charles County 1666-1674, Vol. 60, pp. 22, 32:

(18) Klapthor, Margaret Brown & Brown, Paul Dennis, The History of Charles County, Maryland: Written in Its Tercentenary Year of 1958, Westminster, MD: Heritage Books, 1995, p. 16:

The Charles County Court before 1675 seems to have met at inns or in private houses without exception. Various listings in the County levies show payments to innkeepers for this purpose. In 1671 the levy shows the Edmund Lindsay (Lendsey), the Port Tobacco innkeeper and planter was paid 1,000 pounds of tobacco "for the trouble of his house for keeping court"; and the following year Benjamin Rozer, the sheriff, received 450 pounds of tobacco "while court was kept at his house".

(19) According to the Ancestral File, Edmond LINDSEY died in 1682 in New Castle County, DE. However, the compiler has found several sources, listed below, indicating that Edmond died about five years before then in Charles County, MD, leaving a minor son, Edmond, Jr., surviving him.

(20) Edmund LINDSEY, Sr. died in Charles County, MD before 20 August 1677. See: Skinner, V. L., Jr., Abstracts of the Proceedings of the Prerogative Court of Maryland, Volume I: 1658-1674, Baltimore, MD: Genealogical Publishing Co., Inc., 2004, pp. 215-216:

Following are some highlights from the Proceedings of the County Court of Charles County, 1658-1666, Vol. 53:

Edmund Lindsey sometimes appeared as an attorney in Charles County. It seems probable that in many of the cases in which a plaintiff was represented by an attorney, the case involved a subterfuge to evade the acts of 1640 and 1642, prohibiting the assignment of debts without the consent of the debtor, rather than a bona fide appearance of the plaintiff by an attorney. While these acts forbade such assignments of debts by creditors, they could be evaded by the appointment as attorney of one who really thus became the assignee of the debt. It therefore seems certain that some of those who frequently appeared as attorneys were really men who were buying up bills of debt at a discount, and thus in a small way acting as neighborhood bankers.

On April 17, 1660, William Robinson stated that he desired "Edmond Lyndsey Aged about 36 yeares to be sworne in open Courte." If Edmond Lyndsey was about 36 years of age on April 17, 1660, he would have been born in about 1624.

At the March 4, 1661/2 session of the Charles County Court, Edmund Lendsey, a church warden, sued William Hills for 150 pounds of tobacco, which the latter had promised that he would pay the minister, and the court ordered the payment to Lendsey as church warden. On July 22, 1661, Lendsey had patented a tract of 100 acres on the north side of the Potomac on the easternmost side of a creek "formerly called Nanjemy Creeke but now Avon River", and on February 10, 1662/3, assigned this patent to William Fox, reserving "unto the Church one Acre of Land which formarly he had given unto the Church . . . which the Church now standeth on."

At the November 4, 1663, Charles County Court session, Edmond Lendsey sued Winganatto, King of Nangemy, whose dogs had killed and eaten one of the plaintiff's hogs. The king promptly confessed judgment, and paid a fine of 60 arms' length of Roanoke and costs of suit.

Vol. 57: Following are some highlights from the Proceedings of the Provincial Court, 1666-1670, Vol. 57:

Great violence and sword-play marked the fight between Thomas Oakley of Charles County and George Thompson of the same county at the house of Edmund Lindsey on October 5, 1668. The cause of the affair is not clear, but a civil suit for damages, filed after the criminal action had been heard and determined, gives us details of the fight. Thompson, the clerk of the Charles County Court, and described as "gentleman," had barred himself up in a room in Lindsey's house, and when Oakley tried to enter, Thompson declared if he came in he would kill him with drawn rapier. Oakley broke in the door and when the witnesses entered with a light they found him wounded and Thompson holding him in one hand and in the other his naked rapier with hilt downward. There seems to have been no actual trial on a criminal charge, although Thompson was brought before the court at its December 1668, session and bound over to be on his good behavior; and at the next court held in February 1669, was cleared by proclamation. At the June 1669 court, Oakley by his attorney John Morecroft sued Thompson for 40,000 pounds of tobacco for beating, wounding, and evil handling him, "so that his life he did despair and other enormitees to him did doe to the great damage of him the said Thomas." Thompson by his attorney William Bisse "puts himself upon the country", and the jury finding that Thompson had acted in self-defense assessed the costs of 740 pounds of tobacco against Oakley.

When Edmund Lindsey sued Thomas Sprigg, one of the justices of Calvert County, for unlawfully harboring, or "entertaining," Lindsey's servant, Robert Leeds, both parties to the suit agreed to refer the matter to Mr. Thomas Notley and Dr. John Peerce for arbitration. The arbitrators' award was "that the said Thomas Sprigg shall pay or Cause to be paid to the said Edmund Lindsey his Executors or Assignes the Just quantity of Fiue Thowsand pounds of good Arranoca tob in Caske att or neer portobacco Creek in Charles County at or before the last day of this instant month of december for wch he the said sprigg shall immediately pass his specialty to the said Lindsey for paymt thereof accordingly and then the said Edmund Lindsey to giue the sd Sprigg a Generall release."

25173 (1) The Ancestral File claims that James LINDSAY (AFN: 8MXZ-FP) (a) was a son of Edward LINDSAY (AFN: 8MXZ-CC); and (b) had three brothers, namely, John LINDSAY (AFN: 8MXZ-GV), Thomas LINDSAY (AFN: 8MXZ-H2), and Edmund LINDSAY (AFN: 8MXZ-8T). The compiler believes that these claims are questionable.

(2) The compiler has found no mention, in the early records of MD, of any LINDSAY (however spelled) named Edward. Likewise, the compiler has found no proof, in the early records of MD, that any of Edward's purported sons were related to each other.

(3) The claimed kinship between Edward's purported sons, James and Edmond, is questionable because James was an Irish Catholic, and Edmund was a Protestant who, according to the Ancestral File, was born in England.

(4) See the case of Thomas KELLE, plaintiff, vs. James LINSEY, defendant (MD State Archives , Proceedings of the County Court of Charles County, 1658-1666, Vol. 53, pp. 118-119), heard on 7 May 1661, in which "the Defendant by reason that hee was an Irishman and finding great difficultie to deliuer himself in ow English tounge humblie requesteth the . . . fauor to macke choyse of an Atturney. . . ."

(5) In his will dated 21 April 1671 and proved 3 May 1671, James LINDSEY bequeathed personal property to the Catholic church. See Maryland Calendar of Wills [database online], Provo, UT: The Generations Network, Inc., 1998, vol. 1, p. 433. The compiler believes that James would not have made a bequest to the Catholic church unless he had been a Catholic.

(6) On the other hand, Edmond LINDSEY was a Protestant. At the March 4, 1661/2 session of the Charles County Court, Edmond sued William HILLS for 150 pounds of tobacco, which the latter had promised that he would pay the minister, and the court ordered the payment to Edmond as church warden. See MD State Archives , Proceedings of the County Court of Charles County, 1658-1666, Vol. 53, pp. liv and 193.

(7) An article by William Thorndale, "An Incorrect Ancestry for the Portobacco Lindseys of Early Maryland" appears in the Lindsay Newsletter: Southern Colonial Branches, New York, NY: Elliott Lindsey Stringham, Vol. 1, No. 3, August 1981, pp. 46-50 . That article debunks the ancestry for the Portabacco LINDSEYs set forth in Grandpas, Inlaws, and Outlaws (A Lindsay Family Genealogy), Kenneth Gene Lindsay, (Evansville, IN: c1974), pp. 1-7. That ancestry is substantially the same as the ancestry set forth in the Ancestral File.

Mr. Thorndale's article reads as follows:

Among the earliest settlers of Kentucky was Anthony Lindsay, the founder of Lindsays Station on the Elkhorn. Anthony's Lindsay ancestry is the subject of the first thirteen pages of a book titled Grandpas, Inlaws, and Outlaws, and a captivating ancestry it is. The author traces the Lindsay line back to a Scot who "held a close relationship with George Calvert," First Lord Baltimore. Thomas, the Scot in question, supposedly died in 1608 at Fen-Stanton in Huntingdonshire, England, leaving at least sons Christopher, who went to Massachusetts, and Edward, who followed Calvert to Newfoundland in 1627 and to Jamestown, Virginia, in 1629. Further, according to this book, Edward was a sea captain and commanded the ship that brought Gov. Leonard Calvert to the New World to establish the colony of Maryland. Edward is said to have had four sons: (1) James, who is named in the governor's will and later became prominent in Charles County, (2) Edmund, whose Portobacco inn at one time served as the Charles County courthouse, (3) Thomas, who ultimately settled in Cecil County, and (4) John, who lived in Isle of Wight County, Virginia.

On the face of it, the ancestry is historically entrancing: The link with an English parish, the close association with the Calverts in the settling of Newfoundland and Maryland, and the tying together of Lindsay branches in Maryland, Massachusetts, and Virginia. Unfortunately, the book has no reliable documentation to substantiate its claims and there is primary evidence to contradict the book's assertions.

Consider sea captain Edward Lindsay, who came to Maryland with Leonard Calvert, "made his home in Charles County," and died at sea in 1677. According to contemporary sources, Governor Calvert's ship-the Ark-was captained by Richard Lowe, while the accompanying ship-the Dove-was under the command of Richard Orchard. A list, reconstructed and not contemporary, of all known persons who came on the Ark and the Dove has no Lindsay. A history of early Maryland sea captains lists no Lindsay master. As will be shown below, no sea captain Edward Lindsay appears in the early published Maryland records.

According to Grandpas, Inlaws, and Outlaws, the sea captain's sons James and Edmund arrived in 1643 and 1656 respectively. Yet the author also says they and two younger brothers were born about 1621-1630 in England, but their father Edward came to Maryland by 1634. Does this mean the sea captain left his family in England while he became so settled in Maryland that his estate was probated in Charles County? This is possible but not likely.

The greatest weakness of the book's account of the earliest Lindsay generations is the lack of primary sources. Generalized secondary sources such as Burke's Peerage and Baronetage, Andrews' History of Maryland, and Fiske's Old Virginia and Her Neighbours, plus the Charles County tercentenary history are cursory sources that contribute nothing significant about the Lindsays. Stripped of such secondary sources, the book's references that might supply primary evidence on the first three Lindsay generations are:

1. The Early Settlers of Maryland - G. Skordas, pp. 290-291

2. Maryland Land Records - Burns

3. Maryland Historical Magazine pp. 270, 312, 360, 144, 160, 161, 162, 355, 142, plus XIX, p. 339

4. Charles County, Maryland, Registrar of Wills

Sources 1, 2, and 4 do contain Lindsay references but not to any sea captain named Edward. No where are the more than seventy volumes of the Archives of Maryland mentioned, yet volumes 53 and 60 contain a verbatim copy of the Charles County court minutes, which are filled with references to James and Edmund Lindsay and no reference to any Edward.

Sources 1 and 2 do contain abstracts of Maryland's patent books, but none of the references do more than prove that James and Edmund lived in early Maryland. The one reference to an Edward (Liber Q:131) is clearly Edmund in the original record. Likewise, the early Charles County wills have no support for the tale of sea captain Edward Lindsay and provide no proof of the family ties given in the book.

The author's remaining source is the Maryland Historical Magazine. The reader must first determine the volume numbers, since with one exception the author gives no volumes for where the various paged references are found. There were 71 volumes published 1906 to 1976, all of which were checked here for Lindsay references given in Grandpas, Inlaws, and Outlaws, the following having been found:

XIX:339 "Two Forgotten Heroes," Arthur L. Keith, 19 (1924) 339. Nothing on any Lindsay.

270 Not found.

312 "Private Manors: An Edited List," Donnell MacClure Owings, 33 (1939) 312. Lists the Snow Hill Manor of James Lindsay of Charles County.

360 Not found.

144 "Smallwood Family of Charles. County," Arthur L. Keith, 22 (1927) 144. "On Sept. 24, 1677 James Smallwood and Ralph Shaw were apprs [appraisers] of Edward Lindsay."

160 "The First Church in Charles County," Louis Dow Scisco, 23 (1928) 160. A brief note on a court case initiated by Edmond Lindsay as churchwarden, 1662.

161 Ibid.

162 Ibid. Reference to sheriff James Lindsay of Charles County, 1662. Or the p. 162 refers to "First Land Grants in Maryland," 3 (1908) 162, which is another summary of the James Lindsay ownership of Snow Hill Manor.

355 "People of Early Charles County," Louis Dow Scisco, 23 (1928) 355. Brief accounts of James and Edmund Lindsay of Portobacco.

142 "Smallwood Family of Charles County," Arthur L. Keith, 22 (1927) 142. "On Apr. 20, 1687 Edmond Lindsey sold to James Smallwood land called "May Day", 300 acres, (LaPlata, Lib. N, No. 1, fol. 210)."

All the above references apply to James and Edmund of early Portobacco except for one instance (22:144), which has the 1677 appraisal of Edward's estate.

A check of the original Charles County inventories 1677-1717, pages 11-12, shows that on 24 September 1677 the estate of "Edmond Lindsy late of Charles County Deceased Aprised by us James Smallwood and Ralph Shaw. . . ."

In summary, the primary sources of Grandpas, Inlaws, and Outlaws fail to substantiate the existence of a sea captain Edward Lindsay and do not supply any proof of kinship for the first three generations as outlined in the book nor even give any family ties between James and Edmund. Nor do the book's sources document any connections with Fen-Stanton, Newfoundland, or Jamestown.

And finally, the claim that the family was of English origins is cast in doubt by an entry found in the Charles County court minutes and published in the Archives of Maryland, volume 53, page 119. In the case of Thomas Kelle, plt., vs Mr. James Linsey, dft., heard 7 May 1661, the plaintiff asked for an attorney:

Whereupon the Plantiue alleging that through simplicitie hee was not able to mannage his Caus humbly requesteth Leaue to macke Choyce of an Atturney to plead his caus which is granted him whearupon he Chose Mr John hawkings to bee bee [sic] his Attur: Whearupon the the Defendant by reason that hee was an Irishman and finding great difficultie to deliuver himself in ow English tounge humblie requesteth the lick fauor to macke choyse of an Atturney whereupon hee made choyce of for his Atturney Mr Richard Cosdin. . . .

Since James Lindsay was Catholic as proven by his will and that of his daughter Eliza, it seems he was of native Catholic Irish birth. The other hypothesis is only marginally plausible: James was a Gaelic-speaking Highland Scot from Ulster either Catholic by birth or a convert while an indentured servant to Gov. Leonard Calvert. But whatever his Irish ethnic origins, it seems he was not born in England.

In light of James's Irish and Catholic background, the question of any kinship to Edmund is raised because Edmund was Protestant. James's only son James, Jr., died about 1676-1677 and "left no heir behind him at the time of his death that can lay claim to the said land [he owned]" and thus his land inherited from his father escheated to the Lord Proprietor rather than passing to Edmund or Edmund's son. Does this mean James, Sr., and Edmund were not kin or merely reflect the complicated English land inheritance laws? At present all that can be said is that no direct evidence exists making James and Edmund kin.

In summary, Grandpas, Inlaws, and Outlaws must be rejected concerning the existence of a sea captain Edward Lindsey. The earliest Lindseys of Maryland were James and Edmund of Portobacco, with James being born in Ireland and Edmund's origins unknown. But it should be noted that the great bulk of the book concerns the descendants of Anthony of Lindsays Station and collects a large amount of data on the family. While all statements in this book-or any other genealogy-should be independently verified, the author is commended for getting so much information into print. It is just that the ancestry of the first Anthony Lindsay as given in Grandpas, Inlaws, and Outlaws appears to be wrong and it is doubtful if Anthony's line is even related to the Portobacco men. Proof to the contrary will be happily published in this newsletter if supplied.

(8) According to MD State Archives , Judicial and Testamentary Business of the Provincial Court - 1637-1650, vol. 4, p. 154, James "LINSIR" was a servant of Thomas PURSALL in MD as of December 1, 1642:

"December 1. . . .

"Eod. John hollis complaineth agst francis Gray, & James Linsir[,] Pursall's man, for killing swine of the plaintifs mark vnlawfully, to the damage of the plf. to the value of 500 l[b.] tob[.] [T]he said francis Gray saith that he did kill one marked bore in his owne ground, but whose it was he knoweth not.

With a constant influx of people into the area the Lord Proprietor and the Governor were soon receiving complaints that the distance to the St. Mary's Courthouse was too great for the efficient transaction of business. On April 13, 1658 the Governor's Council ordered the erection of a new County to take care of these more distant settlements. On May 10, 1658 the Honorable Josias Fendall, Governor of the Province issued the following proclamation in the name of Lord Baltimore; "Caecilius Absolute and Prope of the Provinces of Maryland and Avalon, Lord Baron of Baltimore: to John Hatch, James Lindsey, Henry Adams, Edward Parks, James Walker and Robert Hurley Gentn . . . All tht tract of Land of this oe Province of Maryland Bownded with West Wicocomoco Ryver, up to the head thereof and Sowth wth Patowmeck ryver from the mouth of Wicocomoco up as high as any Plantaon under oe govermt is now seated, and from thence wth a right line drawne from such plantaon as afores'd to the head of Wicocomoco Ryver [is erected] into a County" to be named "in honoue of our only son and heir apparent, Charles Calvert, Esquire. Gyvuen under the great seale of this our province of Maryland, this Tenth day of May in the 26 yeare of Our Dominion over the s'd province and in the yeare of oe Lord 1658.

There is no record of where the first Court of the newly erected Charles County was held on May 25, 1658. The second meeting of the Court was held at Humpherie Atwikses on June 4. George Thompson was appointed Clerk of the Court and "James Linsey, Henrie Addames, James Walker, Edward Parks" were the commissioners who were present. The Court met at stated intervals all through the next two years, probably at Humphrey Atwikses, and not until the Court of February 12, 1660, do we find another definite reference to the place in which it was held. The Court record for that date states "Court adjourned until March 12, 1660 and appoynted to bee held at Clement Theobals hows".

The role of the Colonial Militia in Maryland directly effected [sic; should be affected] the lives of the people who lived in Charles County. In June and July of 1668 the militia of the Province had been reorganized and in the new Charles County the earliest mentioned captain was Joseph Jenkins. James Lindsey was Lieutenant. The local captains were required to list all residents 16 to 60 years of age who were able to bear arms and from these lists enough men were to be picked to make up trained military bands for the protection of the colonists. The captains were also obligated to inspect the arms of the householders and see that each family had its proper outfit. They were to hold monthly musters and fine absentees. These fines collected could then be used to buy drums and colors for the militia and "after such provisions was made, to make the company drink at their meetings to muster."

Following are some highlights from the proceedings of the Council of Maryland - 1636-1667:

On June 10, 1647, James Lindsey testified in a deposition that he was present when the late Governor of MD, Leonard Calvert, lying on his deathbed, orally nominated Thomas Greene to his successor as Governor of MD.

Four prominent planters, Joseph Harrison, James Lindsay, John Lewger and Thomas Allanson, brought before the October 1666 court to answer for their contempt against the power of the Lieutenant-General [Governor] as granted to Captain William Boarman, commander of the foot company. They were bound over to answer at the next court when it was expected that the Governor, then absent in England, would be present. Nothing further was heard of the matter, which was probably some violation of muster regulations, and was probably adjusted out of court.

Following are some highlights from the Judicial and Testamentary Business of the Provincial Court - 1637-1650:

As of 1642, James Lindsey was a servant of Thomas Pursall, and was required to continue to serve Thomas' estate after Thomas died.

As of 1647, James Lindsey was a servant of Leonard Calvert, the Governor of MD, who bequeathed some apparel to James in a nuncupative will.

Following is a highlight from the proceedings of the Provincial Court - 1658-1662:

On August 11, 1659, the Proprietor of MD determined that Thomas Gerard did not have title to the 900-acre manor of "Snow Hill," in Charles County, MD, which had been granted to Richard Willan and James Lindsey.

Following is a highlight from the proceedings of the Provincial Court - 1663-1666:

On July 10, 1663, James Lindsey and his wife, Mary, were required to forfeit to the Proprietor of MD the moiety of 450 acres of Snow Hill Manor as the result of a fine levied against James and Mary. At that time, James and Mary were so weak that they were unable, without danger to their health, to travel to court to execute and acknowledge the document required by the Proprietor in connection with such forfeiture, so two representatives of the Proprietor were dispatched to the home of James and Mary to get them to execute and acknowledge the required document.

Following is a highlight from the proceedings of the Court of Chancery - February 16, 1668/69 - October 16, 1679:

On October 8, 1679, a 600-acre parcel of land called "Green Spring," which had been owned by James Lindsey, Sr. at the time of his death in 1671, and had thereafter been owned by James Lindsey, Jr. at the time of his death in 1676, was escheated to the Propriertor of MD for want of an heir of James, Jr. and for nonpayment of quit rent.

Following are some highlights from the proceedings of the County Court of Charles County, 1658-1666:

James Lindsey served as a Commissioner and the Sheriff of Charles County, MD.

James Lindsey claimed a headright for transporting his wife, Mary, into MD.

James Lindsey sometimes appeared as an attorney in Charles County. It seems probable that in many of the cases in which a plaintiff was represented by an attorney, the case involved a subterfuge to evade the acts of 1640 and 1642, prohibiting the assignment of debts without the consent of the debtor, rather than a bona fide appearance of the plaintiff by an attorney. While these acts forbade such assignments of debts by creditors, they could be evaded by the appointment as attorney of one who really thus became the assignee of the debt. It therefore seems certain that some of those who frequently appeared as attorneys were really men who were buying up bills of debt at a discount, and thus in a small way acting as neighborhood bankers.

25174 (1) The Ancestral File claims that Thomas LINDSAY (AFN: 8MXZ-H2) (a) was a son of Edward LINDSAY (AFN: 8MXZ-CC); and (b) had three brothers, namely, John LINDSAY (AFN: 8MXZ-GV), Edmund LINDSAY (AFN: 8MXZ-8T) and James LINDSAY (8MXZ-FP). The compiler believes that these claims are questionable.

(2) The compiler has found no mention, in the early records of MD, of any LINDSAY (however spelled) named Edward. Likewise, the compiler has found no proof, in the early records of MD, that any of Edward's purported sons were related to each other.

Frost, Judith (Noee) 73, of Chandler Arizona, died on Thursday, February 20th, 2014. She was born in Wisconsin to Aselda and Arthur Strittmatter, her siblings (Louise, Carol, and Arthur), widow of George W. Frost. She lived in New Jersey with husband George till 1982 when they moved to Chandler Arizona. She and her husband George (both being Goldsmiths, Gemologists, and Custom Jewelry Designers) continued the business in Chandler Az. After George's death Noee carried on the Jewelry business herself. She was active with the "Bola Tie Society of Arizona", and a published author. Noee was a zealous spiritual being full of pure joy and mischief. She was a gentle soul with a generous heart. Her clever wit always had others smiling. Loving life and the people around her, she will be dearly missed by many. She is survived by niece Lynn Reno, nephews, Dan Reno, Frank Robert, Jim Dann, and Patches (her kitty), and cousins throughout the Midwest, Jack Bushnell and many adopted families along with way. She also had many dear friends and dedicated customers. She will reside with late husband George W. Frost at the VA National Cemetery. A private memorial and gathering is to be scheduled with family and close friends at a later date.

25177 (1) The Benjamin MARCHANT who was born in 1759 in Heathfield, Sussex, England is shown here as the same person as the Benjamin MARCHANT who who died at age 29 in 1788 in Chevening, Kent, England, and who would have been born in about 1759. The Benjamin MARCHANT who was born in 1759 in Heathfield is the only person with that name whom the compiler has found in England with a listed birth or christening date in 1759. However, the compiler has no conclusive proof that these two Benjamin MARCHANTs were the same person.

Heathfield, Sussex, England is about 24 miles from Chevening, Kent, England.

Chevening is a village and civil parish in the present-day Sevenoaks District of Kent, England, and is about 4.9 miles from the town of Sevenoaks, Kent, England. (The present-day Sevenoaks District was formed on 1 April 1974, under the Local Government Act 1972.)

(2) 1841 Scotland Census [database online], Provo, UT: The Generations Network, Inc., 2006:

The 1841 Census for Scotland was taken on the night of 6 June 1841. The following information was requested:

• Place (name of village, street, square, close, etc.)
• Name of each person that had spent the night in that household
• Age*
• Sex (indicated by the column in which the age is recorded)
• Profession or occupation
• Where born**

*The ages of people over 15 years old were usually rounded down to the nearest 5 years. Therefore, someone who was actually 24 years would have their age listed as 20, and someone who was actually 27 years old would have their age listed as 25. If people lied about their ages, or if their real ages were not known or reported correctly, the gap between the rounded age recorded on the census and their actual age may be quite significant.

**The "Where Born" column only asked two questions - 1) whether born in same county, and 2) whether Foreigner or whether born in England or Ireland. Possible answers and abbreviations to question #1 include: Yes (Y), No, (N), or Not Known (NK). For question #2, the following abbreviations were used: England/Wales (E), Ireland (I), and Foreign Parts (F).

Enumeration forms were distributed to all households before the census night and the complete forms were collected the next day by the enumerators. All responses were to reflect the individual's status as of 6/7 June 1841 for all individuals who had spent the night in the house. People who were traveling or living abroad were enumerated at the location where they spent the night on census night. All of the details from the individual forms were copied into enumerators' books and sent to the Registrar General's office in London. These copies are the records we can view images of today. The original householders' schedules were destroyed.

The clerks who compiled and reviewed the census data made a variety of marks on the returns. Unfortunately, many of these tally marks were written over personal information and some fields, such as ages, can be difficult to read as a result. More useful marks include a single slash (/) between households (families) within a building and a double slash (//) separating households in separate buildings.

How the census forms are organized:

Localities were organized into enumeration districts. These districts were roughly equivalent to parishes, but not always. A description of the district and its boundaries is given at the beginning of each new enumeration district.

The returns are generally organized by parish and enumeration district. Each parish has been assigned a "Parish Number." This number was originally assigned in 1855 when civil registration began being kept. The numbers were assigned in a general north to south, and east to west direction by county. Within each county, numbers were assigned in alphabetical order by parish name. Since parish numbers weren't assigned until 1855 and this census was taken in 1841, the numbers were applied to the census retroactively for reference purposes.

A full reference for a record in the 1841 census includes, the Parish Number, Enumeration District Number, Entry Number (Page Number), Parish Name, County Name, and the Census Year.

(3) 1851 Scotland Census [database online], Provo, UT: The Generations Network, Inc., 2006:

The 1851 Census for Scotland was taken on the night of 30/31 March 1851. The following information was requested:

• Place (name of street, place, or road, and name or number of house)
• Name of each person that had spent the night in that household
• Relation to head of family
• Marital Status
• Age
• Sex (indicated by the column in which the age is recorded)
• Profession or occupation
• Birthplace
• Whether blind, or deaf and dumb

Enumeration forms were distributed to all households before the census night and the complete forms were collected the next day by the enumerators. All responses were to reflect the individual's status as of 30/31 March 1851 for all individuals who had spent the night in the house. People who were travelling or living abroad were enumerated at the location where they spent the night on census night. All of the details from the individual forms were copied into enumerators' books and sent to the Registrar General's office in London. These copies are the records we can view images of today.

Since parish numbers weren't assigned until 1855 and this census was taken in 1851, the numbers were applied to the census retroactively for reference purposes. Two other reference numbering systems were used previous to the Parish Number system, but the Parish Number system is the reference system more commonly used by researchers.

(4) 1861 Scotland Census [database online], Provo, UT: The Generations Network, Inc., 2006:

The 1861 Census for Scotland was taken on the night of 7/8 April 1861. The following information was requested:

• Place (name of street, place, or road, and name or number of house)
• Name of each person that had spent the night in that household
• Relation to head of family
• Marital Status
• Age
• Sex (indicated by the column in which the age is recorded)
• Profession or occupation
• Birthplace
• Whether blind, or deaf and dumb

Enumeration forms were distributed to all households before the census night and the complete forms were collected the next day by the enumerators. All responses were to reflect the individual's status as of 7/8 April 1861 for all individuals who had spent the night in the house. People who were travelling or living abroad were enumerated at the location where they spent the night on census night. All of the details from the individual forms were copied into enumerators' books and sent to the Registrar General's office in London. These copies are the records we can view images of today. The original householder's schedules were destroyed.

The clerks who compiled and reviewed the census data made a variety of marks on the returns. Unfortunately, many of these tally marks were written over personal information and some fields, such as ages, can be difficult to read as a result. More useful marks include a single slash (/) between households (families) within a building and a double slash (//) separating households in separate buildings.

How the census forms are organized:

Localities were organized into enumeration districts. These districts were roughly equivalent to parishes, but not always. A description of the district and its boundaries is given at the beginning of each new enumeration district.

The returns are generally organized by parish and enumeration district. Each parish has been assigned a "Parish Number". This number was originally assigned in 1855 when civil registration began being kept. The numbers were assigned in a general north to south, and east to west direction by county. Within each county, numbers were assigned in alphabetical order by parish name.

A full reference for a record in the 1861 census includes: the Parish Number, Enumeration District Number, Entry Number (Page Number), Parish Name, County Name, and the Census Year.

25179 (1) The Boone Society, Inc., "The First 5 Generations of the George Boone Family," August 21, 2008, pp. 1-3:

"GEORGE BOONE II. (Son of George Boone, the First) was born in or near the City of Exeter in Devonshire; being a Blacksmith; his Wife's Maiden Name was Sarah Uppey. He died aged 60; and she died aged 80 years, and never had an aching Bone, or decay'd Tooth."

The Boone Society has not been able to find the marriage or birth records for George Boone II and his wife, Sarah and cannot confirm her maiden name of Uppey. Because "Uppey" is used in the Old James Boone Genealogy, the Boone Society accepts it, and "Oppey/Opie are names also under consideration.

However, The Boone Society does have burial records for both George II and his widow (written "wido" in the old records) Sarah which are recorded at Stoke Canon Parish, Exeter, England. (The Church at Stoke Canon is St. Magdelene.) The original records are now located at the Devon Record Office in Exeter, England, and they read as follows:

Documents owned by the Boone Society:

George Boone was buried ye thirty first of May 1696
Sarah Boon "wido" was buried ye 5th of February 1708

Relying on the James Boone Genealogy that George II was age 60 at his death, then his approximate year of birth is calculated to be 1636; and Sarah, age 80 at her death, would have been born 1628.

Also, the Boone Society has Stoke Canon Parish baptism records for three children of George Boone II and wife Sarah: (1) Henry; (2) George III; & (3) John. Although they may have had other children, only records of three children have been found. These 3 records are:

Documents owned by the Boone Society:

(1) Henry Son of George Boone was baptized the nineteenth of October 1663 Henry Son of George Boone was buryed ye eighth of February 1663

(Note: Yes, the baptism and burial dates for Henry are correct! In the old style reckoning [Julian calendar], March 25 was the beginning of the year, therefore the infant Henry would have been about 4 months old at his burial.)

Documents owned by the Boone Society:

(2) George Son of George Boone was baptized the Nineteenth of March 1666

(3) John Son of George Boone was baptized the twentieth day of April 1673
John Boone was buryed the 18th day of April 1693

1690 George ye son of George Boone baptized the 20th day of July (George IV)

From James Boone Genealogy: "GEORGE BOONE IV. (the eldest Son of George & Mary Boone) was born in the Town of Bradninch aforesaid, on the 13th of July 1690 about ½ H. past 5 in the Afternoon; and died in Exeter Township aforesaid, on the 20 November 1753; in the 64th Year of his Age. He taught School for several Years near Philadelphia; was a good Mathematician, and taught the Several Branches of English Learning; and was a Magistrate for several Years. His wife's maiden name was Deborah Howell. She died in 1759 January 26."

They married 27 July 1713 in Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania. Page 590 of Hazel Spraker, "The Boone Family" showing minutes of the Abington Monthly Meeting of Quakers:

5 mo 27, 1713 (27 July 1713-old style calendar first month was March): Whereas George Boone and Deborah Howell, the daughter of William Howell, having declared their marriage intentions before two Mo. Meetings, Enquiry being made by persons Appointed and found Clear from all others on ye account of marriage, Did accomplish their Marriage in ye United of Friends as is signified by their Marriage Certificate." . . .

1692 Sarah ye daughter of George Boone baptized the 28th day of March

From James Boone Genealogy: "SARAH BOONE (Daughter of George & Mary Boone) was born on the Fifth Day of the Week, about ½ H. past 11 in the Forenoon, on the 18th of February 1691-2."

Sarah married Jacob Stover 15 March 1715 in Pennsylvania, Hazel Spraker, The Boone Family p. 23.

"No known children of Sarah Boone & Jacob Stover," explains Spraker, "Sarah married Jacob Stover 15 Mar 1715, as recorded in Christ Church, Philadelphia . . . possible that she died quite young, and her descendants, if any, are unknown. While she was the first in the family to settle in in the Oley township, she evidently did not affiliate with the Friends Meeting there, as no data concerning her appears in Quaker records. She was no doubt absorbed by the German element into which she married. . . . In 1738 a wife Margaret (Stover) signed a deed for land sold by Jacob to another person, so Margaret was probably a second wife."

(Some researchers believe there were children of this marriage, or at least of Stover's second marriage. Proof sources here would be welcomed.)

Edward French was born about 1590, in England, and died December 28, 1674, in Salisbury, Massachusetts. With his wife Ann and two or more sons he came to America about 1637, and received land in the first division at Salisbury, where he also bought land in 1642. He was a tailor by trade, and probably possessed means when he left England. He was a selectman in 1646-47-48, and his name appears on most of the early town lists as "commoner," taxpayer, etc. His will was made April 10, 1673, and proved two years and three days later. His widow, who was probably a sister of Richard Goodale (I), died March 9, 1683, in Salisbury. [Note by compiler: The compiler does not agree that Edward's wife was a sister of Richard Goodale (I).] Edward French is listed among the settlers of Ipswich in 1637-38. His children were: Joseph, John, Samuel and Hannah, the second born before 1633.

(6) Johnson, Carol Clark, A Genealogical History of the Clark and Worth Families and Other Puritan Settlers in the Massachusetts Bay Colony, Cygnet, OH: privately printed, 1970, pp. 178-180:

EDWARD FRENCH was born in England in 1598 and came to Ipswich, Mass., about 1635, bringing his wife and at least four children. He was a tailor and one of the first proprietors of Ipswich with substantial landholdings. In 1640 he removed to Salisbury and there was a selectman in 1646 and 1648, and the owner of one of the three largest estates. He served on the juries numerous times between 1650 and 1668. Mr. French died December 28, 1674, and in his will of 1673 he speaks of his great age and names his second wife Ann who was apparently a sister of Richard Goodale who called Edward "brother". [Note by compiler: The compiler does not agree that Edward's second wife was a sister of Richard Goodale.]

There were numerous others of this name in Ipswich but there is no indication of any relationship. John, William and Richard of Cambridge came about the same time from England and may have been his brothers but conjecture of this sort is futile. There was also a Thomas French in Boston in 1632.

Children

1. JOSEPH, born in England. . . .

2. John, a tailor, married March 23, 1659, in Salisbury, Mary Noyes (d. of Nicholas) of Newbury. They lived in Salisbury where they were members of the church in 1687. He received land in Salisbury in 1654 and in 1676 saw military service and served on the trial jury. John died in Salisbury May 4, 1706, and his widow Mary died there September 5, 1721. . . .

3. Samuel, of Salisbury, died there July 26, 1692. He signed a Salisbury petition in 1658 and was a member of the church in 1677 and 1687. In 1675 he served in Philip's War at the Marlborough garrison. He married in Salisbury, June 1, 1664 , Abigail Brown who died January 11, 1680. He married (2) Esther _____ who survived him. . . .

4. Hannah married (1) John White of Haverhill in 1662, and (2) Thomas Philbrick of Hampton September 22, 1669. Both were living in 1694.

(7) According to some sources, Edward FRENCH was born in Assington, Suffolk, England. According to other sources, Edward was born in Halstead, Essex, England. The compiler has not found any convincing proof of Edward's birth in either of those places.

(8) According to the French Surname DNA Testing Project, the Y-DNA of a descendant of Edward FRENCH matches the Y-DNA of descendants of the Richard FRENCH who (a) was reportedly born about 1623 in Coggeshall, Essex, England; and (b) died in 1688 in Marchfield, Plymouth County, MA. See the test results of the members of FRENCH Family Group 3 listed at http://small-stuff.com/FRENCH/DNA/results.htm.

Although such test results show that the members of FRENCH Family Group 3 had a common male ancestor, such test results do not establish who that common ancestor was.

[In Essex, England, there are (1) a town named Great Coggeshall and (2) a hamlet named Coggeshall. Those places are about 2 miles apart. In the International Genealogical Index, there are extracted parish records from Great Coggeshall, but no extracted parish records from Coggeshall.]

The compiler has found an extracted record in the International Genealogical Index of a Ric FRENCH who was christened on 29 December 1597 in Terling, Essex, England, and died on 15 December 1568. [Terling is about 8 miles from Great Coggeshall, and about 7 miles from Coggeshall.] Ric FRENCH was reportedly the father of the Richard FRENCH, described above, who was reportedly born about 1623 in Coggeshall.

There is an extracted record in the International Genealogical Index of an Edward FRENCH who was christened on 14 February 1564 in Terling, but he died on 15 December 1568, and could not have been the Edward FRENCH who died more than 100 years later, on 28 December 1674, in Salisbury, Essex County, MA.

(9) Some sources speculate that Edward FRENCH and his family came to America on the ship Angel Gabriel, which was wrecked in a storm off the coast of Pemaquid, ME on August 16, 1635. According to these sources, the family thereafter continued by coastal vessel to Newburyport, MA, and lived about two years in Ipswich, MA before settling in Salisbury, MA.

For more information about the ship Angel Gabriel see Riess, Warren Curtis, "The History of, and Search for, the Seventeenth Century Bristol Merchantman Angel Gabriel," a master's thesis submitted to the Graduate College of Texas A & M University in December 1980 . According to this thesis at p. 27:

"A list of crew or passengers aboard the Angel Gabriel has not been located, but genealogical records and verbal family lore indicate twenty-three of those aboard."

No member of Edward FRENCH's family is included among the 23 persons so identified. Nevertheless, it is possible that Edward's family was aboard the Angel Gabriel.

(10) Edward FRENCH was an ancestor of President Gerald R. FORD, White House diarist Benjamin Brown FRENCH, sculptor Daniel Chester FRENCH, Bishop Phillips BROOKS (lyricist of "O Little Town of Bethlehem"), author Ray BRADBURY, poets Robert FROST and Edwin Arlington ROBINSON, and playwright Tennessee WILLIAMS.

GEORGE BOONE
Male
Event(s):
Christening: 19 MAR 1666 Stoke Canon, Devon, England

Parents:
Father: GEORGE BOONE

(2) The Boone Society, Inc., "The First 5 Generations of the George Boone Family," August 21, 2008, pp. 2, 3-8:

Documents owned by the Boone Society: . . .

George Son of George Boone was baptized the Nineteenth of March 1666. . . .

"GEORGE BOONE III. (son of George and Sarah Boone) was born at Stoak (a Village near the City of Exeter) in A.D. 1666, being a Weaver; his Wife's Maiden Name was Mary Maugridge, who was born in Bradninch (eight Miles from the City of Exeter) in the Year 1669, being a Daughter of John Maugridge & Mary his Wife whose maiden Name was Milton.

["]They (the said George & Mary Boone) had nine Children that lived to be Men and Women: namely, George, Sarah, Squire, Mary, John, Joseph, Benjamin, James & Samuel, having each of them several Children, excepting John who was never married. (A daughter named Mary died in infancy, so they named a later daughter Mary also.) The said George and Mary Boone with their Family, came from the Town of Bradninch in Devonshire, Old-England (which is a Town at 8 miles Distance from the City of Exeter, and 177 measured Miles Westward from London); they left Bradninch the 17 Aug. 1717, and went to Bristol where they took Shipping, and arrived at Philadelphia in 1717 September 29, Old-Stile, or October 10th New-Stile; three of their Children, to wit, George, Sarah & Squire they sent in a few Years before. From Philadelphia they went to Abington, and staid a few Months there; thence to North-Wales and liv'd about 2 Years there; thence to Oley in the same County of Philadelphia, where Sarah (being married) had moved to some Time before. This last Place of their Residence (since the Divisions made in the Township of Oley & County of Philadelphia) is called the Township of Exeter in the County of Berks: It was called Exeter, because they came from a Place near the City of Exeter. And,

"He the said George Boone the Third, died on the Sixth Day of the Week, near 8 o'clock in the Morning, on the 27th of July 1744, aged 78 Years; and Mary his Wife died on the 2d Day of the Week, on the 2d of February 1740-1; aged 72 years; and were decently interred in Friends Burying-Ground, in the said Township of Exeter. When he died, he left 8 children, 52 Grand-Children, and 10 Great-Grand-Children, Living; in all 70, being as many Persons as the House of Jacob which came into Egypt."

The Boone Society has the marriage record of George III & Mary Maugridge (note different spelling of "Moggridge" on original old English hand-written document below) performed at St. Disen 's Church in Bradninch:

Document owned by the Boone Society:

George Boone married unto Mary Moggridge the 16th day of August 1689

The Boone Society also has the baptism record of Mary Moggridge from St. Disen's Church as follows:

The Boone Society has copies of actual baptisms at St. Disen's Church in Bradninch, Devonshire, England, for 6 of the children of George Boone III and wife Mary. (Note: the Old James Boone Genealogy gives us the actual birth dates.) George III & Mary actually had 10 children, which include two daughters named Mary, (the first died in infancy). The children are numbered (1) through (10) below:

Document owned by the Boone Society:

(1.) 1690 George ye son of George Boone baptized the 20th day of July (George IV)

From James Boone Genealogy: "GEORGE BOONE IV. (the eldest Son of George & Mary Boone) was born in the Town of Bradninch aforesaid, on the 13th of July 1690 about ½ H. past 5 in the Afternoon; and died in Exeter Township aforesaid, on the 20 November 1753; in the 64th Year of his Age. He taught School for several Years near Philadelphia; was a good Mathematician, and taught the Several Branches of English Learning; and was a Magistrate for several Years. His wife's maiden name was Deborah Howell. She died in 1759 January 26."

They married 27 July 1713 in Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania. Page 590 of Hazel Spraker, "The Boone Family" showing minutes of the Abington Monthly Meeting of Quakers:

5 mo 27, 1713 (27 July 1713-old style calendar first month was March): Whereas George Boone and Deborah Howell, the daughter of William Howell, having declared their marriage intentions before two Mo. Meetings, Enquiry being made by persons Appointed and found Clear from all others on ye account of marriage, Did accomplish their Marriage in ye United of Friends as is signified by their Marriage Certificate."

Document owned by the Boone Society:

(2.) 1692 Sarah ye daughter of George Boone baptized the 28th day of March

From James Boone Genealogy: "SARAH BOONE (Daughter of George & Mary Boone) was born on the Fifth Day of the Week, about ½ H. past 11 in the Forenoon, on the 18th of February 1691-2."

Sarah married Jacob Stover 15 March 1715 in Pennsylvania, Hazel Spraker, The Boone Family p. 23.

"No known children of Sarah Boone & Jacob Stover," explains Spraker, "Sarah married Jacob Stover 15 Mar 1715, as recorded in Christ Church, Philadelphia . . . possible that she died quite young, and her descendants, if any, are unknown. While she was the first in the family to settle in in the Oley township, she evidently did not affiliate with the Friends Meeting there, as no data concerning her appears in Quaker records. She was no doubt absorbed by the German element into which she married. . . . In 1738 a wife Margaret (Stover) signed a deed for land sold by Jacob to another person, so Margaret was probably a second wife."

(Some researchers believe there were children of this marriage, or at least of Stover's second marriage. Proof sources here would be welcomed.)

Document owned by the Boone Society:

(3.) 1694 Mary ye daughter of George Bone baptized the 26th day of September 1696 Mary ye daughter of George Boone buried 20 May 1696

Document owned by the Boone Society:

(4.) 1696 Squire ye son of George Boone baptized December ye 25th

From James Boone Genealogy: "SQUIRE BOONE (son of George & Mary Boone) was born on the Fourth Day of the Week, between 11 & 12 in the Forenoon, on the 25 November 1696."

Squire married Sarah Morgan 23 July 1720 at the Gwynedd Meeting of Quakers, Berks Co, Pennsylvania. Squire died 2 January 1765 and Sarah died 1777; both buried at Mocksville, North Carolina.

Document owned by the Boone Society:

(5.) 1699 Mary ye daughter of George Boone baptized the same day (previous entry Oct 13, 1699). (Note: This Mary was the second daughter of George & Mary Boone named Mary, not an uncommon practice when the first one died. . .).

From James Boone Genealogy: "MARY BOONE (daughter of George & Mary Boone) was born Sept. 23, A.D. 1699: She was the Wife of John Webb, and departed this Life the 16th of January 1774, in the 75th year of her Age; her Husband died in the same Year, October 18th, in the 80th Year of his Age."

Mary married John Webb 13 Sept 1720 in Philadelphia Co, Pennsylvania

Document owned by the Boone Society:

(6.) 1701 John ye son of George Boone baptized January ye 30th

He was a school teacher and it was he who preserved the family births and deaths and passed it on to his nephew James (son of James & Mary) who wrote the Old James Boone Genealogy, and quoted here:

Continuing with Old James Boone Genealogy:

"JOHN BOONE, Senior (Note: called "Senior" by James Boone, because James also had a son named John, called John, Junior.) John Boone Senior, (the third Son of George & Mary Boone) was born in the Town of Bradninch, in Devonshire in Old-England on the Seventh Day of the Week, about 10 or 11 o'clock in the Forenoon, on the 3 January 1701-2, Old-Stile, or A. D. 1702 January 14, New Stile. And he departed this Life on the 10th Day of October 1785, on the Second Day of the Week, Sixteen Minutes after Midnight, in the 84th Year of his Age (being the oldest of our Name & Family, that we have heard of ); and was decently interred in Friends Burial Ground at Exeter the next Day. He (with his Parents, etc.) left Great-Britain in the 16th Year of his Age, and lived exactly 68 years here (in North-America) from the Day he landed at Philadelphia. He lived only 5 Weeks and 4 Days after the Decease of his Brother James. N.B. All of our Relations of the Name of Boone, who were living after 1785 October 10, are American born, as far as we know." (Hazel Spraker in her book, "Our Boone Family," indicated John Boone never married.)

Sometime after 1701, but before 1717 when George III moved to America, the George Boone III family joined the Quakers at Cullompton, just outside of Exeter, (Devon, England) and thus baptism records for their remaining 4 children were not recorded. Their remaining 4 children were: Joseph, Benjamin, James & Samuel and their birth and death information is shown as recorded by James Boone. All were born in England.

Continuing from James Boone Genealogy:

(7) "JOSEPH BOONE (son of George & Mary Boone) was born between 4 & 5 in the Afternoon, on the 5th of April 1704; and he departed this Life on the 30 January 1776, in the 72d Year of his Age (Berks Co, PA). His Wife Catherine died on the 31st of January 1778, and was interred at Exeter (Berks Co., PA) the next Day exactly 2 Years after the Burial of her Husband."

Hazel Spraker, in her book, The Boone Family quotes from early Exeter (PA) Records: "8-30-1733, Joseph Boone produced a paper of condemnation for proceeding in marriage contrary to order."

Neither Spraker nor the Old James Boone Genealogy give a last name for wife Catherine, but Sarah Ridge Rockenfield in her book, Our Boone Families, Daniel Boone's Kinfolks, USA Boones, gives name of wife of Joseph Boone, son of George Boone III & Mary Maugridge, as Catherine Warren. If this is true, it's interesting that both Joseph Boone Sr. and Joseph Jr. had a wife with the same maiden name of Warren.

Hazel Spraker lists no known children for this couple. The Boone Society has determined, however, that Joseph Boone Sr. and his wife Catherine had at least 3 sons (see Generation 5 for info on their children). Some researchers believe this couple had other children and any proof documents of other children would be welcomed.

Continuing from James Boone Genealogy:

(8) Benjamin Boone (Son of George and Mary Boone) was born the 16th of July 1706 and he died on the 14th of October, 1762, in the 57th Year of his Age. Susanna Boone (his Widow) died on the 5th of November, 1784, in the 76th Year of her Age.

Benjamin married twice, first to Ann Farmer 31 October 1726 at Abington, Pennsylvania (marriage is recorded in the Abington Meeting of Quakers); and married 2nd in about 1736 to Susanna Likens/Lycon.

In Benjamin's will he mentions, "Susanna, my dearly beloved wife". The will is signed 5 January 1762, proved 27 October 1762, recorded Berks County, Pennsylvania. The Boone Society has determined Susanna's last name was Likens/Lycon.

As proof of Susanna's last name, we refer to a May 12-13, 1733 land transaction when Andrew Lycon and his wife Anne sold 200 acres at Manatawny, Pennsylvania, to Benjamin Boone of Oley Township, Pennsylvania (Berks County Deeds Book 1, pp. 68-69). We also cite Dr Peter Stebbins Craig, F.A.S. G., who has written the definitive work on "The 1693 Census of the Swedes on the Delaware" which was published in 1993 by Studies in Swedish American Genealogy of Winter Park, Florida.

On page 36 of this heavily documented volume, Craig proves the surname of Susanna LIKENS (also spelled LYKINS/LYCAN, etc.), the 2nd wife of Benjamin Boone, uncle of the frontiersman Daniel Boone. Susanna LIKEN Boone's parents, Andrew LIKEN (Anders LYCON) "and his wife Anne sold 200 acres at Manatawny (now Amity Township, Berks County, Pennsylvania, acquired in 1721 from Mans Jonasson (Ander's brother-in-law), to Benjamin Boone of Oley Township . . . Berks County".

Page 41, Spraker's The Boone Family: "When and where Benjamin married the second wife Susanna (surname unknown) has not been learned. It is probable that he married the second time out of the Quaker fold, possibly about 1736. At this time he was in disfavor at Gwynedd Meeting." The minutes give this item: "February 27, 1736, Benjamin Boone has not been spoken to since last Meeting".

(9) "JAMES BOONE, Senr, (the Sixth Son of George & Mary Boone) was born in the Town of Bradninch, in Devonshire, in Old-England about 1/2 Hour past 2 in the Morning, on the 7th of July (Old-Stile) or the 18th of July (New-Stile), Anno Domini 1709. And in 1735 May 15 (O. S.) he married Mary Foulke by whom he had fourteen Children, and Nine of them lived to be Men & Women, namely, Anne, Mary, Martha, James, John, Judah, Joshua, Rachel, & Moses. The Said James Boone, Senior, & Mary his Wife lived together 20 Years 8 Months & 25 Days; and She departed this life on the 6th Day of the Week, at 20 Minutes past one o'Clock in the Afternoon, on the 20th Day of February 1756, aged 41 years & 11 Weeks, and was decently interred in Friends Burying-Ground at Exeter on the First Day of the next Week. And in 1757, October 20, he married Anne Griffith, being just 20 Months after the Decease of his former Wife. And here, for the Satisfaction of the Curious, I shall insert a few Chronological Remarks, viz.-

["]The said Mary Boone deceased in 1756 Feb. 20, at 20 Minutes past one in the Afternoon, which wanted but two Minutes & Sixteen Seconds of 20 o'Clock according to the Italian Manner of Reckoning (for the Italians, Jews, & some others, always begin their Day at Sun-Set); which was the 20th of the Zenith Month ADAR, when the Moon was 20 Days old, and 4 Weeks before the Vernal Equinox.

["]The said James Boone, Senior, married Anne Griffith in 1757 October 10, at 20 Minutes past one in the Afternoon; that is, he was married to his Second (or last) Wife exactly 20 Months after the Decease of his first, and 4 Weeks after the Autumnal Equinox."

"JAMES BOONE, Senior, departed this Life on the 1st Day of September, A. D. 1785, on the Fifth Day of the Week, at ten Minutes after nine o'Clock at Night, in the 77th Year of his Age; and was decently interred in Friends Burying-Ground at Exeter on the Seventh Day of the Same Week. He (with his Parents, etc.) left Great-Britain in the 9th Year of his Age, and lived Almost 68 Years in Pennsylvania. N.B. When he was born, it was between 9 & 10 at Night here in Pennsylvania (allowing for the Difference of Longitude); and he died between 9 & 10 at Night."

"Mary Foulke (Daughter of Hugh & Anne Foulke) was born at North-Wales in Philadelphia County, A. D. 1714 December 5 (N.S.)-James Boone, Senior, & Mary Foulke were married, A. D. 1735 May 26, (N.S.) and lived together 20 years, 8 months and 25 Days. She departed this Life, A. D. 1756 Feb. 20 at 20 Minutes past one in the Afternoon, in the 42nd Year of her Age."

(10) SAMUEL BOONE, per Spraker, p. 24, "Samuel b. about 1711." Per Old James Boone Genealogy: Samuel Boone (the youngest Son of George & Mary Boone) departed this Life on the 6th of August 1745, and was buried at Exeter (PA) the next Day, aged about 34 Years." Spraker, p. 49: Samuel married Elizabeth Cassel 29 October 1734 in Pennsylvania.

(2) There are substantial questions about the accuracy of at least some of the information about Philip FRENCH, Jr. and his family contained in French, Mansfield Joseph, Ancestors and Descendants of Samuel French, the Joiner, of Stratford, Connecticut, Ann Arbor, MI: Edwards Brothers, Inc., 1940, p. 29.

The compiler knows of no evidence that Philip FRENCH, Jr. was the son of a woman named Mary; that he was born February 1, 1656; that he was born in Kelshall, now Kelsale, and within the present bounds of Saxmundham; or that he was baptized in St. John the Baptist Church, Saxmundham, on February 8, 1657. In a depostion given in 1698, Philip FRENCH, Jr. testified that he was then age 31 (which would mean that he was born in about 1667), and that he was born at the Hermitage, Wapping, Middlesex, England. [See Item 6 below.]

(3) The questions about the accuracy of information on p. 29 of Mansfield Joseph French's book are based upon the research of Jeanette S. French .

(4) The information below is taken from p. 29 of Mansfield Joseph French's book and is presented here so that the accuracy of some of such information can be questioned:

Philip French, junior, son of Philip and Mary French of Kelshall, County Suffolk, England, was born Feb. 1, 1656, probably in Kelshall, now Kelsale, and within the present bounds of Saxmundham. He was baptized in St John the Baptist Church, Saxmundham, Feb. 8, 1656 (old style), really 1657. Philip French, senior, was undoubtedly the younger brother of Rev. Jeremiah French. His baptism is recorded in St John the Baptist Church, Saxmundham, Nov. 13, 1625; and he bought from Rev. Jeremiah the old family estate at Knodishall. Moule's "English Counties" describes "Knodishall, or Knottishall, 3 miles east from Saxmundham," also "Benhall, one and one-half miles west from Saxmundham," also "Kelsale, one mile north from Saxmundham" These hamlets are all now (1939), within Saxmundham postal district. In Vol. 61, page 393, of "New England Historical and Genealogical Register" appears an "Abstract of Will of Phillip French of Kelshall, County Suffolk, esquire, dated 12 Feb. 1697-8; giving "Wife Rebeckah annuity of £60. Eldest son Phillip French my lands in Knoddishill purchased of Jeremiah French. To John French my son £1000 to be paid him in New York in America. Youngest son William French under 21. Sister Ann Pigeon and Mathew, her son. Cousin John French £3, but if dead to his eldest son, and he to be supervisor till my son Philip come over to England, if he shall happen to be beyond sea. Proved in P.C.C. 4 Feb., 1703-4, by Philip the son and Exor." Nothing is known of Philip French, junior, before his arrival in New York "the second time," in 1689. He married July 6, 1694, in the Dutch Church in New York City, Anna Philipse, daughter of Frederick and Margariet (Hardenbroeck) Philipse and is then called "Mr. Philip French, young man from London." He was a prosperous merchant, engaging extensively in the importing and exporting trade, and an active anti-Leislerian. (Which may indicate that he was interested in the extensive smuggling operations that a group of wealthy international merchants, among them Frederick Philipse, seem to have been interested in at that time, according to Governor Leisler.) He was Speaker of the Assembly in 1698, Alderman in 1701 and Mayor of New York in 1702. He lived in New York, on the south side of Pearl St, next east of the famous Fraunces Tavern. He is also said to have lived near the.corner of Broad St. and Exchange Place. He purchased a large estate near New Brunswick, New Jersey. In his will dated May 29 1706, proven June 3, 1707, he mentions his wife, Anna, son Philip and daughters. Elizabeth, Anne and Margaret and refers, but not by names, to the children of his brother, John. (See New York Wills, Vol. 7, page 304, new p. 395).

PATENTS AND LAND-GRANTS IN WALPACK.

Two early patents were located in Minisink under authority of the province of New York which covered a portion of ancient Walpack. These were the grant made to Arent Schuyler, issued May 20, 1697, and the Minisink patent, granted Aug. 28, 1704. The Schuyler patent embraced 1000 acres adjoining the Mackhackemack and extending southward so as to include the Minisink islands. It is thus described :

"A certain tract of land in Minisink country, in the province of New York, called by the native Indians Warensaghskennick, otherwise called Maghawaemus; also a certain parcel of meadow, or vly, called by the Indians Warensaghskennick, situate, lying, and being upon a certain run, called by the Indians, and known by the name of Minisink, before a certain Island called Menayack, which is adjacent to or near to a cer-tain tract of land called by the Indians Maghakeneck, containing the quantity of 1000 acres and no more."

Arent Schuyler, who was employed by the govern-ment of New York as an interpreter and agent among the Indians, visited this locality in 1694, and made the following entries in his journal, which he reported to the Governor:

"JOURNAL OF CAPTAIN ARENT SCHUYLER'S VISIT TO THE MINISINK COUNTRY.

"May it please your Excell:

"In persuance to yr Excell: commands I have been in the Minissinck Country of which I have kept the following journal : vizt

"1694 ye 3d of Feb: I departed from New Yorke for East New Jersey and came that night att Bergentown where I hired two men and a guide.

"Ye 4th Sunday Morning. I went from Bergen & travilled about ten English miles beyond Haghkingsack to an Indian place called Peckwes.

"Ye 5th Monday. From Peckwes North and be West I went about thirty-two miles, snowing and rainy weather.

"Ye 6tth Tuesday. I continued my journey to Maggaghkamieck [Port Jervis] and from thence to within half a day's journey to the Menissinck.

"Ye 7th Wednesday. About eleaven a clock I arrived att the Minis-sinck, and there I mett with two of their Sachems and severall other Indians of whome I enquired after some news, if the French or their Indians had sent for them or been in ye Menissinck Country. Upon wch they answered that noe French nor any of the French Indians were nor had been in the Menissinck Country nor there abouts and did promise yt if ye French should happen to come or yt they heard of it that they will forthwith send a mesinger and give yr Excellency notice thereof. . . .

"In the afternoon I departed from ye Menissincks; the 8th, 9th, & 10th of Feb. I traveled and came to Bergen in ye morning and about noone arrived at New Yorke.

"This is may it please yr Excell: the humble report of yr Excellency's most humble servt.

"ARENT SCHUYLER."

The Minisink patent was granted Aug. 28, 1704, to Matthew Long, Ebenezer Wilson, Philip French, Derick Vandenburgh, Stephen de Lansey, Philip Rokeley, John Cobert, Daniel Howan, Caleb Cooper, William Sharpas, Robert Milward, Thomas Wenham, Lancaster Syms, John Person, Benjamin Aske, Petrus Bayard, John Colewell, Peter Fanconier, Henry Swift, Hendrick Ten Eycke, Jarvis Marshall, Ann Bridges (widow of John Bridges), and George Clark. This grant embraced the western part of Ulster and Orange Counties, and extended southward on the Delaware River "to the south end of Great Minisink Island," and eastward "to the bounds of the Wawayanda patent granted to John Bridges and Company." It was the attempt to crowd down these patents upon the lawful territory of New Jersey, and to appropriate the rich lands of the Minisink and the upper Wall-kill, under color of title from New York, that caused the long and bitter boundary line controversy referred to in another part of this work.

CORRECTION

Through the courtesy of Miss Rosalie Fellows Bailey, attention has been called to the omission of a child of Philip French and his wife Anna Philipse, . . . in the April, 1939 RECORD, p. 133. She was Anne, born about 1702, married the Hon. Joseph Reade, member of the King's Council; died Nov. 3, 1778, in her 77th year, in New York City. Her portrait by John Wollaston is on loan to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and hangs in the American wing. She is mentioned in the will of her father, Philip French (WNYHS I:442).

PHILLIP FRENCH. In the name of God, Amen. I, Phillip French, of New York, merchant, being in perfect health. I leave to my wife one third of rents and income of estate, and one third of personal property. I leave to my son, Phillip French, all my lands in Suffolk County in England. I leave to my three daughters, Elizabeth, Anne, and Margaret, all my lands and estate in East New Jersey, which I lately purchased from Thomas Coddington. I leave to my wife £1,000, and all plate, rings, jewels, etc. I leave to the poor of the Parish of Kellshell, in England, £5. Mentions "children of my brother, John French." I make my wife Ann, Lewis Morris, and my brother in law, Adolph Phillipse, executors.

Dated May 20, 1706. Witnesses, Jacobus Van Cortlandt, Phillip Schuyler, Edward Brown. Proved, June 3, 1707.

[NOTE. Phillip French was son in law of Fredrick Phillipse. His residence, which was the house and lot given by his father in law in his will, is on the south side of Pearl street, and next east of the famous "Fraunces Tavern." W. S. P.]

The executors of Philip French, of New York, being all dead, Letters of Administration are granted to Cornelius Van Horne of New Jersey (who married Elizabeth, one of his daughters), Nov. 15, 1751.

(15) North of the Raritan Lotts: a History of the Martinsville, New Jersey Area, Neshanic, NJ: Martinsville Historical Committee, 1975, pp. 84-86, 88-92:

That is what happened in this story, which begins with "Capt." (as he is titled in legal documents of the times) Thomas Codrington, or Coddington, one of the first 24 East Jersey Proprietors.

By 1685 Codrington had acquired two 877-acre "Rariton lotts," and in 1688 he bought another 1,000 acres lying to the rear of the first two, the whole tract running from the Raritan River back to the East Branch of the Middlebrook. These 2,754 acres had earlier formed part of the First and Second Indian Purchases of 1681. Codrington's house, called "Rackawackhana" (meaning "muddy flats") is thought to have stood on the north bank of the Raritan, near its confluence with the Millstone River.

The stroke of luck was the discovery of a deed on record in the New Jersey State Library at Trenton, showing that Thomas Codrington sold all 2,754 acres in 1706 to a Philip French. This fact set the stage for the events that followed.

A biographical account of a French family member verifies this Philip's identity. Although the book mentions nothing about his having owned property in Somerset County, it does provide an interesting background of the family. (For purposes of clarity the Philip French who purchased Codrington's land will be called "Philip French II.")

Philip French I was a wealthy English gentleman whose business interests brought him to New York City on several extended visits. He returned to England finally in 1680, leaving his son in America. Philip II became prominent in government affairs, serving as Speaker of the New York Assembly and in 1702-3 as Mayor of New York City.

In 1694 Philip II married Annatje Philipse (daughter of Frederick Philipse, the Dutch patroon of Philipse Manor in Tarrytown, and his second wife, Catharine, the daughter of Oloff Van Courtlandt).

Philip II and Annatje had a son, Philip III, who settled in New Brunswick, New Jersey, as well as three daughters, Elizabeth, Anne and Margrot. Shortly after acquiring the Raritan:River property, Philip French II died, leaving to these children his vast real estate holdings, both in England and America.

The daughters received the Raritan River property. Margrot died young, Elizabeth became the wife of Cornelius Van Horne, and Anne married Joseph Reade. Van Horne and Reade are described in later property indentures as merchants from New York.
